I get the stuff at the hardware store. Used this stuff to strip the firewalls of rust etc on old cars. Suggest reading up on this stuff before using it tho.
This stuff I use is not dangerous, after using you can pour it out on the ground. I also run water on it after wards as it smells, but it is biodegradable. I think I will leave the muriatic acid alone, (nasty stuff!)
